Everyone knows that all breeds of dog are suspended above ground at least once per stride at a full gallop. Sighthounds, on the other hand, are able to utilize the double suspension gallop, where they are suspended above ground twice in one stride. Once in the tucked position where their back foot can almost reach past their shoulder, and once in the fully extended position where the curve of their topline will actually reverse. Talk about extreme strength and flexibility! Before I had my greyhounds, I knew nothing about this. Ever since my first greyhound came home with me, I've been absolutely fascinated with the way they move. I got a picture of my two the other day showing both suspensions, and I was really taken aback by how incredible and powerful they are. Then again, maybe I'm biased- that whole "proud mom" thing. :blushing: Either way, I wanted to see what you all thought of it. So without further adieu, here's Dazzle and Echo at full flight.
